Folks, it’s been a hell of a week here in the Kinjaverse. Welcome to the latest (but hopefully not last) edition of Fur Face Friday! I’m Chuckles, your host for this week. It’s business as usual here at Snout Selector HQ. We are not members of the GMG union, but we stand in support of them as this website is being dismantled by an herb. But as long as this website still exists, we’ll keep compiling your best animal pics every Friday.
Congrats on surviving October! Your reward is an extra hour of sleep this weekend (assuming that you live in a country that observes Daylight Savings Time). But before we all go taking down Halloween decorations and preparing a Thanksgiving feast, let’s look at some cute animals.
In case you’re new (in which case, welcome!): Favorites are chosen by one of the Snout Selectors (KrabbyPaddy, facw, Chuckles, k2b, Hannibal, Iroqdemic, Vivlock, and Leahaven), entirely on our own whimsy. WHIMSY. (One more time for the people in the back: W H I M S Y ). However, in the interest of solidarity, we try to select one dog picture and one cat picture (minimum!) each week. Other pets will also, of course, be considered. We love all your rats, bunnies, ferrets and other furry, feathery & finny pals. WE WILL NEVER DISCRIMINATE AGAINST CUTE. As always, we’re happy to dismiss any pictures if you decide you want them taken down at some point.
If you don’t have a pet of your own to feature this week, I highly recommend featuring and linking to any cuties who are available for adoption and looking for a home on Petfinder or any other shelter or rescue site. If you’re like me, you probably know people doing some good rescue/foster/support work in your area, so please feel free to share the love and the fluff from your hometown.
In that sharing spirit, if you don’t have a pet but want to participate, drop off your best Internet find of an animal .gif or meme or tweet in the comments. The more animal lovers, the merrier :) Speaking of sharing, feel free to share these posts anywhere in the Kinja-verse, because it has been scientifically documented that looking at pictures of cute animals reduces stress.
This was an extremely challenging week to be a Snout Selector. Just look at all of the adorable animals that we saw in last week’s post. I had a very difficult time not just picking everyone! If your adorable submission didn’t get picked, please don’t take it personally. I enjoyed each and every picture that was submitted, and in the end, a few of the selections came down to a coin flip. But let’s go ahead and take a look at a few of the excellent Fur Faces that you submitted last week:
Let’s start things off with a costumed critter. It’s Ginaaa’s Cosmo is looking like he could use a nap after a long night of trick-or-treating:
Hannibal A Portas’ Fanny went to the party as a very reluctant Angel:
But cute costumes aren’t just for the dogs. PumpkinSpies’ Boggs showed that cats can dress up too:
Some animals don’t have time for trick-or-treating. CarsofFortLangley introduced us to Luna. She works the night shift down at the local liquor store. She’s a real booze-hound:
Luna wasn’t the only animal in a store this week. Ysubassoon showed us Ginger Baby, who stopped by the pharmacy for a brief consultation.
Meanwhile, DipodomysDeserti’s dog was caught red-handed (or is it red-pawed?) after getting into some sort of mischief. Tis the season.
A few animals this week looked they were getting ready to go into hibernation. Mimi_Krimi got some good cuddles from one of her cats:
His Stigness’ Mufasa isn’t hibernating, he just knows that he’s royalty and deserves to be treated as such:
HappyBerry showed us not one, but two sleepy fluffballs this week. Here they are reenacting a famous Renaissance painting:
Not to be outdone, honkhonkhonkwillnevertlkabouttarantinoagainphd shared this picture of dual cat cuddles with Jem and Scout:
Thus concludes the sleepy cat portion of FFF. Next, let’s check out a few animals with a little more energy. Meet Junebug, who belongs to Lymond’s sister. Such a cutie!
And here’s MBCock’s Vanny. I can’t get enough of this adorable face!
I Brain You introduced us to Thunder and Storm, a couple of adorable doggos. I’m not sure which one is which but I love them both!
We’re almost to the end, but I’ve got time for a few more! Meet Nittany, who recently decided to finally warm up to TheOperaGhost. Nice work, OG!
And ever the goofball, KiltedPadre’s Edgar showed us that anything can be a box if you want it to be:
Lastly, we’d like to say goodbye to RPM’s Blue, who passed away this past weekend. Here’s a picture of Blue in happier times. Rest in Peace.
And that’s it for this week’s edition of Fur Face Friday! Thanks for sticking with me through a lengthy post this week. I usually try to narrow it down a bit more but I just couldn’t! Feel free to share this post across Kinja as you see fit. We could all use a few more fur faces in our lives. Hopefully we’ll be back here at the same time and place next week. Your guess is as good as mine. Have a great weekend everyone, but before you go, show us your fur faces!!!
